McCullars Claim Mega Millions

Jim & Carolyn McCullar
(Jim & Carolyn McCullar-Mega Millions Winners)

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) – The Washington state man who bought one of the two winning tickets in the $380 million Mega Millions lottery has claimed his half of the second largest jackpot in history.

Jim McCullar then promptly handed over the oversized check to his wife, Carolyn on Thursday. Jim McCullar says the pair have been married 41 years and he knows what to do with the check.

While the McCullars stepped forward to get their prize in the state capital in Olympia, officials and residents in neighboring Idaho are still waiting for whoever has the other winning ticket to claim their winnings.

No state taxes would apply in Washington, where the lump sum payment would be $90 million after the 25 percent federal tax. In Idaho, the lucky winner also has the option of taking a nearly $81 million lump sum payment.

The winning numbers were 4, 8, 15, 25 and 47, with the Mega ball number of 42.
